Asmyco, an app developer come industry analyst firm, recently put out a post essentially stating that for each iDevice sold, 60 apps have been downloaded. They worked out this magical number from the number of iOS apps downloaded, which is approaching 10 billion total downloads, dividing it by the total number of iOS devices sold.

It's important to note that it's not just iPhones that they're counting here: iPod touch and iPad play a significant role in bolstering the total number of iDevices out there, but 60 apps per iDevice seems incredible. Of course Apple doesn't put out precise numbers for these things, and Asmyco might be over exaggerating for all we know, but even if it was 40-50 apps per iDevice that's a huge number.
